"From the moment I picked your book up until I put it down I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it." Groucho Marx
Groucho Marx is best known as part of the three man comedy team, the Marx Brothers, which was made up of Chico (b. Leonard), Harpo (b. Adolph, but known as Arthur) and Groucho (b. Julius Henry). Early on the group included two other brothers, Gummo and Zeppo. Between 1924 and 1950 they made many hit movies including Duck Soup' and 'A Night At The Opera'. In his later years, Groucho became something of a cultural institution and wrote several autobiographical books. He died in 1977 at the age of 87.
